Rome – Byron

In the Villa Borghese gardens there is also a statue of Lord Byron who lived in Italy from 1816 to 1822. During that period, he spent some time in Rome in 1817, but also lived in Venice, Ravenna, Pisa and Genoa.

Byron attended the funeral of Percy Shelley in Rome in July 1822, and 12 months later sailed to Greece where he met his own death in April 1824.
